CALL TODAY: Congress must keep the door open for refugees.
At a time of global crisis, when there are more refugees and displaced persons than at any time since World War II, the U.S. must keep our doors open to refugees who flee persecution.
Here’s how you can help make sure this message is heard:
STEP ONE: Look up the phone number for your Member of Congress and Senators at this link.
STEP TWO: Call your Members of Congress and Senators and use these suggested talking points to send a clear message:
I’m a constituent from [State] and I support refugee resettlement in the U.S. As your constituent, I urge you to oppose any legislation that seeks to halt or restrict resettlement or funding for any group of refugees.
The refugee crisis is larger than at any point since World War II, with an average of over 40,000 people displaced from their homes every single day. America needs to respond with urgency and compassion for the world’s refugees. We can do that while also maintaining the highest levels of security for our country. It is not an either/or situation.
Time and time again, Jews were refugees, fleeing violence and persecution. Like contemporary refugees, Jews became part of the fabric of this country. Guided by our history and the Jewish value of “welcoming the stranger” I urge you to keep America’s door open to refugees.
